When you're battling acne and tired eyes, you can alway rely on makeup as a quick remedy. It's hard to resist covering up. Yet, layers of primer, foundation and concealer don't ease skin problems or appear au naturel. While most skip primer to limit the number of layers, adding this step can greatly reduce the amount of foundation or concealer that you use.
Smashbox Global Lead Makeup Artist Lori Taylor revealed to the solution for natural-looking makeup. "You should invest in the perfect primer to enhance your skin," she told sources backstage at the Rebecca Minkoff spring 2017 show. "Primer can't take the place of skin care, but if you're someone that hasn't been the best with your routine, it will change the appearance of your skin."
Once you've found the right primer, it's time for application. "The easiest way is to start at the center of the face and apply out and up with fingertips, no applicator needed," suggested the pro. Easy enough, right?
"I love to see more natural-looking makeup and less layers. You want to enhance your beauty, not mask it." Lori said. "This is similar to what Rebecca Minkoff's collection was all about: girl power, letting your best self come through and being authentically you."
